How Often to Get 2013 Lincoln MKX Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2013 Lincoln MKX? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2013 MKX’s oil should be changed according to Lincoln’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your MKX in the above table. No matter the mileage, your MKX may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Lincoln if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Lincoln MKX. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Lincoln MKX?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2013 Lincoln MKX motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lincoln has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2013 MKX. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your MKX’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your MKX by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2013 Lincoln MKX Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln MKX? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Lincoln MKX engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lincoln oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln MKX exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
